Armchair BEA: Welcome Visitors!

Sophie and Laura readingMy cat Sophie & I reading Tale of Despereaux

Welcome visitors! My name is Laura & Tattooed Books is my haven for my book outlet. I'm in my mid-20s & married to a very supportive husband who helps my blog & its HTML-challenged writer. I have worked in libraries for the last 9 years & have spent the last 3 years of that in a public library as a Young Adult programmer. That's just a fancy way of saying that I plan the teen programs & work with the teen book collection.

95% of the books I review, authors I interview & giveaways I participate in are YA oriented. I love everything from paranormal/urban fantasy to realistic fiction in the YA genre. While YA is my main love, I do branch out occasionally to some adult genres like Sci-Fi/Fantasy or even a little Romance. Basically if it's a good book up my alley, you can bet I'm gonna read it & tell you my thoughts.

Feel free to poke around in my archives, grab my button, or visit any of my favorite bloggers! Be sure to check in for my Armchair BEA posts! I'll be Armchairing from home mostly. I do actually work in a library, so time at the computer there is reserved for business. :)

I agree with Caitlin - your job sounds fabulous. In my next life, I'm going to be a YA librarian :)

Glad to have found you via Armchair BEA!

Hey, Laura! So nice to meet you. And I must say I LOVE Despereaux. I'm in charge of the youth programming for our library, as well. We just had a tea party yesterday. It was a riot of good fun (possible too much sugar?)..I was their butler. Had the White Queen, Mad Hatter, a royal jester, a knight, a duke a duchess, oh and one came a Alice! Anyhow, enough yakking from me...hope you enjoyed the week!
